Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!! What is everyone doing today? Mr. Sweets and I are in our pajamas watching A Muppet Christmas Carol, and being disappointed that Home Alone isn't on until Monday. And Home Alone 2 isn't on in the next week! It's my Christmas tradition to watch them, and my US DVDs don't work in our DVD player. Sad face.
P.S. I just found out that Miss Piggy's real name is Emily! What is THAT!
So, in England, Mince Pies are a Christmas favorite and made every year. Personally, I don't like them, but Mr. Sweets does so he gets all 10 of them!
Sorry for the blurry picture! So, Mince Pies. "Mince Meat" is made from dried fruit and some other stuff I don't care to know! All you need is some shortcrust pastry, a jar of Mince Meat, and some milk to brush on top!
So if you like spiced dessert with a touch of sweetness and bites of dried fruit, this is for you! It's best when warm, and Mr. Sweets eats it with ice cream.
